Mushroom Minute: PSMS ID Clinics & Our Nov. 3 Event

3010111 - Mushroom Walk at Bridle TrailsA couple notes on ‘shroomy stuff!

First off, the Puget Sound Mycological Society has started up its fall mushroom ID clinics on Mondays. From 4-7pm on Mondays at the Center for Urban Horticulture, you can bring in mushrooms to be identified. If you are new to mushroom hunting, it’s a good way to confirm the ID of your weekend haul before frying ’em up for a weeknight dinner.

And secondly, there’s still time to buy tickets for our November 3 “Talking Mushrooms with Becky Selengut and Langdon Cook” event. It will be a fun evening of chatting about mushrooms with these two local authors.

Becky will be sharing her perspective on foraging, selecting, and cooking mushrooms from her new cookbook Shroom: Mind-bendingly Good Recipes for Cultivated and Wild Mushrooms.

Langdon will speak about foraging, both his personal experience, and his insights from following commercial pickers for his critically acclaimed book The Mushroom Hunters.

We’ll sample Becky’s black trumpet pate and pickled chanterelles, and even have a candy cap mocktail to drink! Tickets are $12.50 for non-members, $8.50 for members.
